1 out of 5 eggs Needs RTL871x USB WiFi 01/27/2015

This review is from: BPI-D1 Open-Source IP Camera

Pros: I managed to get a Hirose DJ13 to jam into the debug port. Output only. I couldn't get a shell prompt.

Cons: It's seems to expect a RTL871X USB WiFi chip. The nano banana pi wifi listed above doesn't work.

1 out of 5 eggs Needs USB WiFi 01/09/2015

This review is from: BPI-D1 Open-Source IP Camera

Pros: Really small and lite!
The software is open source (builds on Ubuntu Linux).
Based on the Lamobo D1 design.
Includes micro USB-OTG to USB-A cable.

Cons: Zero documentation included. Online docs serve (slowly) from China.
You need a USB-WiFi adapter to talk to it (not included).
It isn't clear what WiFi adapters work. One doc mentions that the "Nano Banana Pi WiFi Dongle" should work.
Connectors on the board aren't labeled (see online pictures).

Other Thoughts: You need Windows to update firmware (docs reference a "programming USB port", but that isn't labeled on the board).
It needs a micro SD card to store images (not included).

ASUS F2A55-M/CSM FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: BIOS GUI makes flexible configuration easy. BIOS can be updated from a USB drive (no operating system).
Supports UEFI secure boot and legacy modes.

Cons: The "auto" mode for memory speeds isn't perfect. Some days it was finding the right speed and everything was solid. Others, it was locking up. I ended up locking the memory speed manually, then it was stable.
It's not easy to switch from "auto" CPU speed to a fixed speed. In Auto, it shows the final clock, but the manual settings are for a base clock and multiplier. It's not clear what you need to match what it was finding in "auto".

Other Thoughts: I wrote the "stability issues" review and can't figure out how to edit it. So I wrote a new one.
